Guy like Gomez however, has a big cap, with one remaining year at 4.5M, easy target.
But I'm not convinced this amnesty buyout will work. Seems to only favor rich owners.
If the rich owners are the ones targeted for footing the bill of teams who shouldn't be in this league then you can bet that it won't matter whether the buyout clause only favours them. This is what the players want? The money we spend on the habs used to foot the bill of the likes of Shea Weber in Nashville. It personally disgusts me, but it seems the players' ranting has been getting into some people's heads.
